Isabell Kohten works at the Office for National Statistics in the UK Centre of the Measurement of Government Activity. She writes: The purpose of this Centre is to improve and develop further output and productivity measures for public services such as health or education, and my specific task is to establish the basic principles and methods and their economic foundations. That, in some sense, requires a lot of thinking about philosophy of economics, and more than once I have literature again that was covered in the PH413 course (rational choice, public choice, economic policy, the concepts of welfare and well-being, to name a few). Even though I don’t expect this to be the case for most jobs I will go through in the future, I did value the PH413 course as a very valuable addition to the very technical economic courses that didn’t look at underlying assumptions/views of the world any more but focussed fully on establishing and solving complex models.
